Samurai 11oz Indigo Dyed 'Koushi' Sashiko Workshirt (Oversea Edition)

Size Guide
Inspired by the traditional 'Koushi' pattern sashiko worn by Japanese farmers in the past, this one highlights the beauty of Japan's workwear of the old era.

Created using vintage jacquard knitting machines, the sashiko pattern has an elegant 'patch' check overlaid. Added tasteful depth to the overall texture and will become enhanced with time. The raised surfaces will shine to a brighter shade and the crevices will maintain a darker tone. Thanks to the Kasuri indigo thread dying, many different indigo shades make up for a varied look.

Constructed with vintage machines and chain stitch run-off, this has a classic worker ambience. Fitting wise, this is the newest 'Oversea Edition' that comes with a longer vertical and fits more fashionable!

Enjoy some incredible fading with time!
